Alabama remains mostly healthy at the midway point of its preseason practice. There are several players that are bruised or taking precautions after 12 practices, but only one player has been out with an injury in recent practices, coach Nick Saban said.
Sophomore running back Najee Harris hasn’t been seen participating in practice during the open period since Saturday’s scrimmage.
“Najee Harris has a cast on his foot because he has a minor foot injury that our medical staff here felt like totally staying off of it for a week would be very, very helpful,” Saban said. “When he comes out of that, we’ll start rehab. He’ll be day to day. But this is not a long-term issue that we think is going to be a significant problem for him even to be ready for the first game.”
Other news on the injury front was positive for the Crimson Tide this week. Outside linebacker Jamey Mosley returned to practice on Tuesday night after sitting out a few days with a separated shoulder. Sophomore safety Daniel Wright, who was also being evaluated for a shoulder injury, returned as well. Freshman defensive lineman Stephon Wynn Jr. remains out with a leg strain.
